Trend Alert: Rose Gold

Jun 23, 2015

Lately, it seems like rose gold is everywhere, from jewelry store displays to the pages of InStyle and Cosmopolitan. And for good reason – it’s versatile, stylish, and more neutral than either yellow or white gold. Fun fact: that soft, pinkish hue comes from the copper that is combined with yellow gold to create rose gold.

We’re big fans of the rose gold trend, especially when it’s combined with moissanite. Here are seven pieces of jewelry that do just that.

Delicate Moissanite and Recycled 14k Rose Gold Ring, McFarlandDesigns on Etsy, $748

McFarland Designs is an Etsy shop every green gal should know about. Designer Tamara McFarland is a self-described “eco-freak,” and uses environmentally-friendly materials and practices in many aspects of her business. It’s no surprise, then, that she likes working with moissanite. This particular ring is made of recycled rose gold and features a 4.5mm (.23 ct) moissanite stone. We love the pattern on the band – it’s eye-catching without being overwhelming.

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Kristin Coffin here at Moissy.com. This talented designer has even written a guest post for us.  The star of this ring is the fabulous emerald cut Forever Brilliant® moissanite stone – at 7x5mm (1.05 ct), it’s truly a show-stopper. The feather-patterned rose gold band accentuates rather than distracts from the beauty of the stone, and is a great choice for someone who wants a rustic but stylish engagement ring.

They say two gemstones are better than one (or something like that)! This elegant vintage-inspired engagement ring features a Forever Brilliant® moissanite center stone and six small diamond accents along the band.  Also impressive is the beaded detail around the bezel setting and on the band itself.  The combination of rose gold and the sparkle of moissanite and diamond creates a ring that’s total perfection.

We’ve written about our love for RosadosBox in the past, but the quality and style of this ring has reached an entirely new level.  The 7x5mm (0.75ct) pear cut moissanite center stone is just to die for, as is the diamond-studded band.  This piece is also offers a trending double-whammy, featuring not only rose gold, but also a halo setting. Halo settings have been especially hot lately, probably because they can make a center stone look bigger than its actual size.

Radiant Cut Moissanite Diamond Engagement Ring, Studio1040 on Etsy, $2,100

Speaking of halos, this ring has one of the most beautiful halos we’ve ever seen! The 8x6mm cushion cut moissanite at the center is close to 2 ct, add the halo and the center stone appears to be larger than its actual size. The halo itself includes a total of 0.2 ctw of diamond accents, and very detailed design work that creates a “scalloped” look.  This ring would be ideal for the bride-to-be who loves vintage-inspired styles.
